This line has been written in various forms for some years now. I especially recall last year's thread when it was written to near consensus that conservative estimates would peg the Habs at 248 goals scored for. Waiting for the season where everyone plays their best under a condition of zero injuries while getting breaks and great goaltending will be a long wait indeed.

There needs to be insulation created to the external factors in the form of talent and depth, and with the Habs both are lacking in large enough quantities.

Gauthier is reportedly on vacation , a sign that he's satisfied with next season being as unsuccessful as this season.
